What age is the ideal time to bring your child to the dentist?

Since August, I've been attempting to see my daughter. In advance of the first dental checkup, I registered her with my dentist. Now that she has 10, I keep calling to make an appointment for her but they always say they are fully booked with emergencies.

  • The advice I received from my dentist was that they should start going to the dentist once they've been introduced to sugar
  • You can go to the dentist starting when your child has her first tooth. Getting an appointment, however, is it's own challenge!

  • I started taking my son at 3, going before then would’ve been a waste of time because he would not cooperate. Now he’s four and we’ve gone every six months, he’s their star patient and his teeth are perfect. 

    Side note: I’ve always brushed his teeth regularly since he was 6months and started flossing once his teeth started to touch at 2yo.
